    Councilmembers to host spring 'Community Budget Workshops' around Seattle

    SEATTLE - City Councilmembers will host four "Community Budget Workshops" in Delridge, the Central District, University District and Columbia City over the month of May. Councilmembers will engage with the public to ask their spending priorities for the 2015-2016 City budget. Members of the public can make suggestions about the specific departments listed for each workshop, as well as identify neighborhood needs and priorities. After a City Budget Office presentation, there will be small group discussions with Councilmembers, and a report back at the end. The public is encouraged to drop in during any of the scheduled times to talk about any issues concerning the City budget.

    "We wanted to reach out into the community and hear what the public has to say about their budget," said Councilmember Nick Licata, Chair of the City Council Budget Committee. "I hope you’ll stop by to talk to us about any issues important to you."
